Last week for St. Patrick's Day I made corned beef and cabbage, all by myself, and it turned out EXCELLENTLY. The cabbage probably could have cooked longer, but we all agreed better undercooked than overcooked when it came to cabbage, and the beef was cooked so perfectly it didn't matter much. It may have been the most ambitious cooking project I've done so far, and the fact that it turned out well makes me feel quite pleased.
I purchased Pokemon SoulSilver, because I am a Pokemon master and have been since the age of twelve. I'm impressed with the game so far - Gold and Silver were my favorite games, and the upgrade only made them better. Although my reading has suffered since I got it, as now I play on the train on my commute rather than read.
Speaking of reading...I polished off the first Sookie Stackhouse book, and I liked the second half a lot. The first half was slower going; I felt like Charlaine Harris doesn't really hit her stride with the character until about mid-book. But Sookie does end up being a really interesting character, rather than the painfully (and non-sensibly) naive woman she is in the beginning. I do actually think True Blood is more interesting, because HBO fills out the story with some truly excellent elements (like Tara, who is not in the book, and who I missed with every page turn).
Tonight I'm going to see Tegan and Sarah with a friend and her sister, and it should be fun. Their new album is not really my favorite, but it's pretty ok, and hopefully they'll play some of the older stuff I'm more familiar with. Tomorrow I'm going shopping with my mom for jeans and sun dresses, because HOPEFULLY it will EVENTUALLY be warmer so I can wear dresses again. I miss that.
